Castlemaine Secondary College student and Castlemaine singing talent Kian Brownfield has won the prestigious Triple J Unearthed High competition for his song Waiting.

Kian was reportedly performing his song before a whole school assembly last Wednesday when the school fire alarm sounded. As Kian and fellow students filed out of the gymnasium they were greeted by a couple of Triple J presenters aboard a fire truck who delivered Kian the exciting news that he was the 2018 winner!
